(August l) (Saints) (3rd century) Bonus, a priest, with Festus, Maurus and nine others, was martyred at Rome under the Emperor Valerian (A.D. 257). They are mentioned in the Acts of Saint Stephen, Pope, though the name Bonus does not occur therein. He is probably the same with Basil, one of the Martyrs they note.
